Whee-lo Box Cover Circa 1970

FUN FACTS!

Maggie Magnetic Inc. of New York introduced the "Whee-lo - The Magnetic Walking Wheel" in 1953.

In 1957, the Whee-lo sells for 79 and comes with 6 "Whee-let" colorful attachments.

Advertising on the package promotes the Whee-lo as a great "contest toy, sick room toy and back seat toy."

In his autobiography The Stringless Yo-Yo, Harvey Job Matusow claims to have invented the Whee-lo to raise money to pay his legal fees. Harvey Job Matusow was charged with lying to Congress during the 1957 Anti-Communist McCarthy trials.
